Posted By

According to Florida case law as of the date of this article, the owner of a dog cannot be held liable for injuries by his or her dog if the injured person was negligent in provoking or aggravating the dog.

See:  Harris v. Moriconi, App. 1 Dist., 331 So.2d 353 (1976)  

NOTE: The reasoning of the court in this decision was disapproved by the Supreme Court in Shaun Leo REED v. Felix BOWEN, 512 So.2d 198, Supreme Court of Florida.
